I have already tried but the pictures of the plate will not connect.
You can email pictures to***@******.*** and put 'for rarewares in antiques' in the subject line.These do not arrive instantly, so thanks in advance for some patience when sending this way.
Kyoto is in Japan, by the way. There were many factories there, so that is why I need to see what you have and the mark.Thanks!

I have waited too long for a response so my battery is very low. I feel I should not be charged extra for a phone call as I was being given ads for lawyers. I will put this down to experience. Thanks. Mrs H
I do not participate in the phone call service, so that must have been an automated pop-up.The experts here work for the site but not at the site and therefore have no connection or knowledge of your account or charges.

If I can get the pictures of the front and back of the Kioto plates attached later this evening I will send them to the address given at Rarewares. Thanks.

No need. I know what this is now that I see it.This is English transferware in the Kioto pattern made by Bates, Gildea and Walker of Burslem, Staffordshire, England in 1880. The pattern was made in clobbered polychrome (many colors) transferware and in brown, blue and green. The pattern is a rather complex one, with several borders around a circular cartouche which contains a bird (much like a woodpecker) perched on a branch. Beneath the bird is a vivid blue segment which is repeated in the border pattern. The border pattern also includes cranes or herons standing and in flight. The pattern name of Kioto is a representation of the Japanese aesthetic period in design of the late 1800's.This plate has a value of $40.00.They no longer make these, of course, but there are plates available online quite often. You would search for Bates, Gildea and Walker Kioto pattern plate as a search term.It is important for you to click the stars after you have read this answer.
